An award-winning South African brand influencer and content creator, Mihlali Ndamase, has apologized for dragging big brands on social media.
She took to Instagram to apologize to her fans.
She had taken to Instagram to expose several brands for not sticking to their end of the deal and paying what’s due to her.
Ndamase works with numerous brands but exposed four brands for not running her cheque.
Firstly, there was Vodacom, then Saint Lounge in Cape Town, Malfy Gin South Africa as well as Roth Media.
On Instagram, she disclosed that “I hosted Saint Lounge in August. I still haven’t received payment. Kindly advise when can expect my money my angels? These are two other brands that owe me mone, should I elaborate” wrote Mihlali Ndamase.”
She then put Vodacom on blast saying she did not leave her house to shoot content for them for free so she expects her payment. “… as much as I love you I didn’t leave my house and shoot content for free, when are you paying me sana?.”
She took aim at Malfy and Roth media, “Hayike sana months of not paying me as a brand ambassador @malfyginsa @roth_media” wrote Mihlali Ndamase.
According to her, she is fed up of being the bigger person, “Bigger person ushonile, I want my money” she wrote.
After getting paid what’s due to her, Mihlali apologised to her followers for her behavior saying she had exhausted all of her options.
In a video, she said, “Hey my loves, so I wanted to take a moment to sincerely apologise to you guys for what you were exposed to this morning. It’s very unfortunate that it had to get to that point, but once you’ve exhausted your options, what else can you resort to ? Sincerest apologies. I’m sorry you guys had to see that side of me. Hopefully, it will never come out again”.
“I feel like it’s my job to serve you guys content and whatever happens behind the scenes is really not your problem or your business. But I really do appreciate the support you guys showed me. I genuinely appreciate it. Even to my colleagues in the industry and those who spoke up as well, I really do appreciate it,” she added.
“Hopefully, we can get to a point where we all respect each other more and brands can pride themselves in upholding their end of the deal once the content has been delivered,” according to her.
Mihlali’s Instagram right now is revolutionary. There is an unspoken rule to not call out brands. She did. And she is the biggest influencer in SA. Love her work

Mihlali is dragging big brands for late payments. If they can do that to her, I can’t imagine what they put smaller creators through 💔
